Let’s break it down so you have a clear picture! Although the capacity in those areas have increased, maintaining social distancing and wearing face masks is still mandatory.

  • Hotels can operate at FULL capacity.
  • Cinemas, museums, restaurants, cafes, and shopping malls can operate at 80% capacity. Up to 10 people can be seated at one table at restaurants and cafes in Dubai.

The regulations for attending live events have also been slightly tweaked

Live events and exhibitions can only be attended by those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and it has been less than 6 months since the second dose. This includes participatants in clinical trials.

Those with chronic illnesses and the elderly can only attend if no more than 3 months have passed since their second dose.

Those wishing to attend events must present a negative PCR test, taken within 48 hours, plus the letter E or gold start showing on the Al Hosn app. NCEMA are also urging establishments to use the ‘green pass’ protocol for certain categories of events to help contain the spread.
